What do our children think about the program?


Ned- “I really enjoyed using the wheelbarrow to take the mulch down to outside the office area this week. The garden is looking better and better. We made delicious mini falafel burgers in the kitchen this week, they were very tasty!” 


Lauren- “I really like how Nikki and Carolina include everyone and everyone has fun. I like planting and harvesting in the garden and cooking lots of delicious healthy food in the kitchen! It’s all so fun and I always look forward to Tuesdays.”


Violet- “I like how we have to try new foods in the kitchen, some of the foods I would never have tried before if it wasn’t for the program. It’s good to get some fresh air on Tuesdays when we are in the garden and not in the classroom!”
